Hello all and Happy Thanksgiving! As a show of thanks to all my readers and customers I am sharing:)  Last year I wrote this post about teaching vocabulary to my ELL students. Now I'm sharing all my lessons for both ancient and American history.  Here is an example:

I've also included a link to the Quizlet I created to go with the vocabulary.  In Quizlet you can make differentiated quizzes for assessment by choosing the "test" option.  You will need access to Google Drive to access these.  Enjoy!

  1. do you have a lesson plan for this on TpT? WHen do you do these lessons?

    1. Hello! I don't have a lesson plan. We have a page in our interactive notebooks for unit vocabulary. At the start of class, we go through the seven steps of vocab and do one word a day!
